Authorization, mediation, moving and over usage
#1
Sad 
I have a few questions. I am from Florida

1) My doctor ordered a test and medical equipment for me. How long does the insurance company have to authorize this?

2) I know like most of you, I am tired of all this work comp stuff. Have asked my attorney if he could set up personal mediation at his office and that was some time ago. I don't understand how come he wont do this. Anything that I might be able to say to him that would speed this up? I have asked so many times. Everytime he put in a PFB and a mediation is set from that, the IC responds to the PFB and then the mediation gets canceled cause issues have been resolved. I want a mediation to settle.

3) I will be moving to Virginia and I was wondering, has anyone ever moved while under work comp and does it make everything more difficult?

4) I spoke with my attorney about over usage and he told me to make an appointment with my orthopedic under my current claim then when I am there, ask him if he will treat me for my new problem. I have all this documented in my email. Should I print out the letter the attorney sent me about this and show it to my doctor?

5) Also my PM doctor ordered blood test and I had them on the 13 of Nov. If he found anything wrong they would call right?

Any thing you can tell me is great, I am all ears....

information/rules on the provision of health care under Florida comp laws here
http://www.fldfs.com/wc/provider/role-insurer.html

an injured worker is entitled to benefits proscribed by law; under florida law a settlement or buyout of the claim in not required or mandatory.

it can. medical treatment rules differ between states. physicians in one state may not wish to comply with other rules and payment schedules.

there is no problem sharing the correspondence from your atty.

there is a lot of information available on Florida's website about it's work comp benefits.

if you are worried about test results you should contact the doctors office.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
